Government contractors in the United States are subject to a wide range of complicated legal requirements that may not impact other businesses.
As a result, even the sharpest and most experienced business professionals can find it difficult to understand fully the sometimes convoluted requirements and intricate technicalities of the typical federal contract. So, our business lawyers focus on working with and helping businesses in Central Florida and Central Pennsylvania that have been awarded a government contract from any local, state, or federal government entities.
Our Attorneys Offer Help Drafting and Reviewing Government Contracts and Bids
While some government contractors are quite adept at drafting bids and reviewing contracts, others require a bit of assistance in this area. Our team of experienced business attorneys is here to provide you with the help and guidance you need to draft and review a detailed, well-written bid to land your next job with contract terms that are clear, precise and favorable to you as a government contractor.

An experienced business lawyer in federal government contracting understands the “legalese” of your government contracts and we are aware of the various elements of that contract can impact your business and your bottom line.
Our goal is to help guide our clients with their government contracts and any legal issues that they may arise as a result of their business dealings. We strive to help you maximize your profits, minimize liability and resolve any issues that arise. Our team of attorneys will focus on all of the issues that may be related to the contract, as well as any further legal matters, so that you can focus on whatever it is that you do best!
Your Guide to Affirmative Action Compliance for Federal Government Contractors
Many government contractors are required to comply with affirmative action guidelines. Our Florida and Pennsylvania business attorneys can help government contractors with a range of affirmative action related issues such as:
- drafting affirmative action plans;
- implementing affirmative action plans;
- training all levels of management on complying with the requirements of affirmative action plans; and
- preparing written guidelines to help contractors identify potential employees who belong to minority groups.
For example, a federal contractor may conduct training programs, outreach efforts, and other activities to encourage the recruitment and hiring of qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, covered veterans, and more.
Our experienced government contract lawyers also work with companies and independent federal contractors who need help understanding the rather comprehensive procedural and reporting requirements that are associated with government contracts. Contractors of the government are required to conduct internal audits and train their management staff regarding the practical changes needed for full implementation of the plan. Additionally, we help government contractors in Florida and Pennsylvania to complete, review, and file their EEO-1 and veterans’ reports.
Providing E-Verify Assistance for Government Contractors in Central Florida and Central Pennsylvania
The E-Verify system is mandatory for all government contractors. The E-Verify system allows employers to confirm a job candidate’s eligibility to work in the United States.
When an employment offer is made, the job seeker must complete an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form. The employer then enters that information into the E-Verify system. The information is compared to Social Security and Homeland Security records, and the job candidate is either “authorized” or “tentatively non-confirmed.”
The Florida and Pennsylvania federal government contractor attorneys at Sandman & Lankford, PLLC work with contractors to implement E-Verify, to create or update a background screening plan that considers EEOC guidelines, and to update the application and interviewing process for compliance with the always changing and evolving employment laws and regulations set by the United States government.
